Our member organisations work across sectors – including health, education, human rights and humanitarian contexts – and range from small grassroots actors to large international organisations. Some are programme implementers and service providers, while others focus on research and advocacy, seeking to bring child marriage to national, regional and international attention.

With their experience, unique understanding and longstanding work with girls and communities affected by child marriage, our member organisations inform the strategy, activities and messaging of our global Partnership.

Girls Not Brides is only as strong as its members. We believe we are more effective in achieving our objectives when we work together. By joining Girls Not Brides, you will become a part of – and strengthen – the global movement to end child marriage.

We have received technical support from Girls Not Brides, which has helped us to accelerate our child marriage campaign in the Nepali community. The Girls Not Brides Theory of Change, fundraising toolkit and other publications are empowering as well as motivating us to work on child marriage.
